The other great thing about the car resting is that if you're out and about on foot or on the bus, you have to consider what a PITA it's going to be to haul home whatever you buy.

I may have to re-think my number of no spend days because I have a daily spending limit. I'm having to get very creative with how I spend. But maybe that's a good thing! We'll see how it goes. I had a planned lunch out with family today and got a half tank of gas (full tank would have put me over for the day). I want to try to make the gas last until at least Tuesday. That means I have to let the car rest tomorrow and Sunday until I go to work.
